Sichuan Peppercorn is an indigenous wild plant sourced from West Garo Hill district of Meghalaya. We have collaborated with the farmers in remote villages of Meghalaya to ensure this elusive spice has been cultivated in fertile, unprocessed soil and is pure and flavourful. Sichuan pepper has a unique aroma and flavour that is not hot or pungent as black pepper. This spice has a peppery flavour with a lemon-like component and leaves a tingling sensation on the tongue that is slightly less powerful than Szechuan peppers from China.
Indian Sichuan peppercorn is a rich source of Potassium, Vitamin A, Iron, Manganese, Copper, Phosphorous.
Traditionally Sichuan peppercorn was used to relieve flatulence, abdominal pain, toothache, reducing cramps and bloating. It also helps in strengthening the bones and improves immunity.
